Kevin Ouma is an Independent documentary photographer based in Nairobi Kenya with frequent assignments in East Africa. He is an alumnus of the Mohamed Amin school for Broadcast Journalism, which he attended on a Reuters Scholarship. Kevin focuses on working with nonprofits for commissioned work. He also does personal projects. He is keen on covering themes around social justice and human rights, specifically telling nuanced stories of marginalised communities in East Africa. His mission is to tell a different story about Africa that shows the diversity of life, society, culture and community than the traditional perspective of poverty and political chaos that the world is used to seeing.

His most notable achievements include being a Foundry Photojournalism Fellow and a World Press Photo Master-class alumnus. He was also part of a team of five top Kenyan photographers who were selected by Safaricom (largest telco in the country) to work on a seminal photography project capturing unexpected images of Kenya that shaped a new narrative of the country from a different perspective. He is also a member of OneTouch Media, a collective of Kenyan Visual creatives. When not travelling, he enjoys spending time with his wife and son in Nairobi.
